Lynchburg Low Back Pain May Be Relieved with Care of the Diaphragm

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the connection? Curious! Researchers have been describing how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its capacity to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center integrates this data into its Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan to relieve Lynchburg non-specific low back pain.

NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been bothersome for more than 3 months and doesn’t seem to have an exact cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not typically required yet imaging, opioids and surgery continued to be overused. (1) Visceral fascial limitations, restrictions of the deep fibrous connective tissues enclosing muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may produce pain in the lumbar spine. Treating patients with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center welcomes Lynchburg low back pain patients with this type of condition. Such pain is often frustrating for patients, and Palmer Chiropractic Center can frequently help.

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An interesting approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and publishes cases and explanations of its success in reducing non-specific low back pain is taking care of the diaphragm, that dome-shaped muscular structure that divides the thoracic (chest) and abdominal sections of the body. The diaphragm originates along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and attaches to the lower ribs. (3) It moves when we breathe. Stretching the diaphragm significantly enhances cervical spine extension, right and left cervical spine flexion, flexibility of the posterior chain (the muscles of the back part of the body) and ribcage excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) By means of manipulation and treating the diaphragm produced significant improvement in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5) Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization along with treatment of the low back specifically plus breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and reduces disability for these patients. (6) Such improvements are very appreciated by sufferers with Lynchburg non-specific low back pain.
